Los Angeles, 12th of May, 2000.

The place where we six

rogues met for the first time.

We had thought that we

would win over the world...

...but we got screwed instead.

Ajju... It was his plan.

We all have to go to hell one day.

Do this job and you'll go in a...

...big car else

you'll have to go walking.

You can keep your big car.

I prefer walking.

It's better than

going on four shoulders.

Hey stutterer,

try to understand.

Bali... Sports an earring,

abusive in nature and pea-brained.

You're trying to

make me understand?

Do you think this is some

cooperative bank in Kolhapur?

You will walk in and point a gun at

the guard, and he will intimate the...

...cashier, who in turn, will gift-wrap

all the money and give it to you...

...saying, Happy birthday,

sir! This is America, ass!

Within two minutes,

you'll be brought back here...

...and you'll be

celebrating your birthday here.

Bali had uttered

words of wisdom for the...

...first and the last time in his life.

- Trying to make me understand!

Major. Only Major or his past

knew why everyone called him...

...Major. But our

present was dearer to us.

Major said... - Ajju is right. - Hell!

We'll have to come back here...

...whether we take

the right or the left.

Hey chicken! You're right.

- Yes, I'm right.

I'll send for you when

I've to burgle a poultry farm.

Chicken stealer! - Hey don't call me

chicken... - I won't call you that.

I understood.

- Yes.

Hey! What do you say?

And this is me,

I'm always thinking.

But now, I feel why I didn't

think about it at that time.

I'll think about

it and let you know.

What'll be my share?

Andy, he had done his

masters in software development.

His consent was necessary for

the development of this plan.

As much as you can handle.

- But how much?

The question isn't: How much

liqueur is there in the bar?

The question is:

How much can you drink?

And what about the cop?

Mark, he was a bouncer in a

club. From there he bounced here...

...directly, amidst us.

He'll come in our way only when

he comes to know about our plan.

And by the time he

comes to know about it...

You would've opened a dance

bar in Mumbai along with your...

...girl. And we six would come

there to see your girl dance.

Hey Ajju! Enough! Don't

say anything else about her.

Hey Mark! I'm scared!

See, my hands are shivering.

What if the police comes?

- They won't.

What if they do?

- Then we'll send them back.

Can't we do anything else?

Something which is less risky?

Fortune wants to

warm your bed for you...

...and you want to

sleep on the couch!

Fortune is that whore who

doesn't sleep with me. Understood?

Fortune! If any one of us

tries to make our fortune...

...then these

people won't let us.

If someone is

killed somewhere, then...

...these people nab us.

If there's a theft anywhere,

then our houses are searched first.

The Italians have their mafia.

The Colombians

have their cantles.

The Chinese have their triunes.

And all these are so

organized that no policeman...

...can ever dare to

knock at their doors.

And we... we Indians,

what do we have? Nothing.

Nothing but police records.

If even a blind man sees

something at a distance...

...of 400mts, he says,

"That must be an Indian.

And these people nab

us and bring us here.

At a distance of 400mts, even

an elephant looks like a hammer.

We are made to wear

the turban of crime...

...and we'll be made to

wear it as long as...

...we don't have

money to buy innocence.

Major was a good speaker.

Had he spoken on screen...

...then he would've
